Hard to fathom this picture was taken over a month ago now.

It was one of the last days our team was able to meet in person.

We had a joint class meet up with Edwardsville CEO for the students to work on sales and presentation skills.

Regardless of how they've chosen to proceed the experience of getting to this point has taught them a lot about themselves.

And being self-aware is key to building a successful fulfilling life inside and outside of their business or career journey!
